This is the captain. I am speaking to every man aboard this ship. I believe what we stumbled acrossed is not man-made but a phenomena of nature, one that can't be explained. This phenomena is the storm in which the Nimitz went through less than 18 hours ago. The storm has had some effect on time as we know it, it created a portal, a door into another era. Today is December 7, 1941... I'm sure we are all aware of the significance of this date in this place in history. We are going to fight a battle that was lost before most of you were born. This time, with God's help, its going to be different... Good Luck.
--Kirk Douglas as Captain Matthew Yelland (The Final Countdown - 1980)

Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

$_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

I only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. So, please don't complain. If there is a title not included in the Roundup that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone...like Dave & I do!

Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart prices in the standard Roundup: Wal-Mart sets prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart location. When it comes to Wal-Mart prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


**BE CAREFUL! The Final Countdown is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one. Also, Penn & Teller: Bullsh*t: Season 1 is available is both censored and uncensored versions...be sure to get the one you want.

--Amazon is still featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

--Best Buy is offering deals on CSI season sets. Season 3 is available for $64.99. Seasons 1 and 2 are each available for $69.99. However, if you buy two seasons, you can save $15. Buy three seasons and save $40! $65 + $70 + $70 = $205. $205 - $40 = $165 (total cost). $165/3 = $53 each. Good deal! (Math computations brought to you courtesy of Frezon Lousy Math, Inc.)

--Best Buy is also giving a deal on Texas Chainsaw Massacre. If you buy the new 1-disc copy of the 2003 version of TCM (15.99), you can also buy the original version of TCM ($15.99) and get them both 2/$25. Or, you can buy the new 2-disc SE of the 2003 TCM (29.99) and get the DVD of the original TCM for FREE!

--Best Buy has also got a deal on Something’s Gotta Give. Buy SGG ($17.99) AND As Good As It Gets ($9.99) and get them both 2/$20.

--Best Buy is also offering a deal on Brother Bear. Buy it along with “any title in our Disney DVD section” and save $5.

--Best Buy is also offering a FREE DVD with the purchase of the Panic Room SE. Buy Panic Room SE and get “any of these titles FREE: Taxi Driver, Dr. Strangelove, Black Hawk Down, Close Encounters of the Third Kind or Lawrence of Arabia. Does not include superbit, deluxe or special edition versions.”

--bestbuy.com has quite a few price differences this week from the flyer prices – some of those differences in favor of bb.com. For example:
CSI: Season 3 is $64.99 in the flyer, $59.99 on-line.
Hangman’S Curse is $19.99 in the flyer, $17.99 on-line.
Sanford & Son: S4 is $24.99 in the flyer, $17.99 on-line!
Conversely,
Michael Buble:Come Fly (w/ CD) is $14.99 in the flyer, $24.99 on-line!
Ripley’s Game is $19.99 in the flyer, $20.99 on-line.

--Circuit City’s got a similar deal on Something’s Gotta Give. Buy SGG with As Good As It Gets OR with A Few Good Men and get the two DVDs for 2/$22.

--Circuit City is also offering $3 off with the combined purchase of the Brother Bear DVD ($7.99) and the Brother Bear CD soundtrack ($11.99).

--K-Mart is offering $5 off when you buy Brother Bear AND the Lion King 1 1/2. "Offer expires April 17."

Just the TCM (2003 CE)/TCM (1974) 2-pack for me @ BB. Just ordered it online. I was going to pass on the remake because of the high price, but when I saw BB's flyer last night, I knew I'd have to jump on that deal since I still don't have the original. In case anyone's interested, the deal is available online (I just ordered it), in case you don't want to have to deal with the BB employees.

Thanks, Aaron! Didn't realize they used the picture of the 2-disc set. Wonder if its a mistake? Let the games begin! In case you folks didn't get all the way to the bottom of the RoundUp, THIS is the week of the price drop on the Schindler's List Collectors Set.

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Thanks Mike!

I was looking at -
Texas Chainsaw Platinum
Panic Room
Ripley's Game.

As I don't care about Best Buy's freebie discs, its a very disappointing week for prices on these titles!Posted Image

Also according to the Rewardzone website they are also giving double points on the purchase of "Panic Room SE". Nothing for me this week as I have "Brother Bear" already and will p/u "The Final Countdown" sometime in the future. Thanks Mike as always.

What's the scoop on "The Shape of Things to Come"? I thought this disc was already out (by Blue Underground). Is this a new version/re-issue/? I didn't see anything about this on DVDPriceSearch.com. Does anyone here have some more info? Thanks, - Bob
